ELC Look On the Bright Side Kit

Hi friends, Erin Lee Creative has a fantastic new kit today which coordinates with the previously-released Somewhere Kit.  It's called Look On the Bright Side, and it has a die, stencil and stamp sets with the most perfect sentiments for encouragement cards.  There is also a rainbow alphabet set available as an add-on.  Join us in our blog hop today and comment to enter for a giveaway (see below).
Isn't this a great kit?
My first card uses the rainbow burst stencil.  I pounced white ink through the stencil, then I used Polychromos pencils to color over the white ink.  This technique allows the color to stand out on dark cardstock.  Of course I had to add a little shine and glitter, so I colored over parts of the rainbow and rays with a shimmer pen.



My next two cards were inspired by a T-shirt ad I came across, and I loved the ombré of skin tones.  I really believe that good things are coming, and I absolutely believe that we rise by lifting others.  When we work together and see …

ELC Peace, Love & Happiness Kit

Hello friends,
I have some fun projects today using Erin's newest kit.  It's called "Peace, Love & Happiness", and it has so many groovy possibilities!  It comes with a background stamp, stencils, dies and two full stamp sets.  There are also two add-on dies available.
I have all kinds of ideas for this set, but today I'm only showing 3 cards.  I used one of my favorite techniques on my first two cards--Copic coloring over white embossed images.  This swirly background stamp has so many colorful possibilities, and I started with rainbow first.  It brings back memories of skate nights in elementary school for some reason. I love how the colors seem to glow on the black cardstock.



My last card uses one of the stencils in the kit.  I blended a rainbow of inks around the center, then popped up this sentiment on a matted rectangle.  Isn't it the best sentiment?

There are so many fun things you can do with this set.  Go grab yours from the Erin Lee Creative shop!

These brand new stamps and dies put a modern twist on some classic designs.  Today I am using the Houndstooth Background stamp along with the Congratulations and Happy Birthday dies.  Love the font on these!

First up is the classic black and white houndstooth with a pop of red.  I die cut a rectangle out of the middle for the sentiment and added just a peek of red behind the card front.  I think this makes a great masculine card.

Erin Lee Creative January Release

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Erin Lee Creative January release.  When I received these products I sat down immediately and started to play.  There are such fun new stamps, dies and stencils.  I'm sure you'll find something you like.

We are hopping today (see list below) to show off these great new products.  If you've come from Lindsay Dickason's blog, you're in the right place!

There will be two (2) $25 gift certificate winners chosen from the comments on our blogs, so comment away!  Winners will be posted on the Erin Lee Creative Blog on Saturday, February 1.

First up:  Stained Glass Stencil


I used some pearly embossing paste with this stencil, and as you can see, the results are nice and crisp.  I popped up the "hello" (Big Hello Love Die) on some foam for more dimension, and the card is complete.  With a great background like that, a simple word die will finish it without competing.



Next up we have two products: Leopard Background and Let's Mak…
